At Home Chemical Peel


Apr 17, 2016
Ok so i just got done writing out my salicylic acid result and now i would be writing on my experience with salicylic acid and at home chemical peels. There are a lot of chemical peels that can be done on the skin, some are mild and some are very strong. Example of a strong peel would be a TCA Peel.

TCA peel should only be done by an approved dermatologist or a medical professional. A long time ago i burnt myself from the misuse of TCA peel and it took a really long time before i got rid of it. I gained a lot from researching chemical peels and I'm confident enough now to do milder peels on my skin.

My Result From Salicylic Acid Peel

At home chemical peel should be mild for example lactic acid peel, glycolic acid peel and salicylic acid peel are mild and can be done at home. Even though this peels are mild they can still cause some disasters on the skin if not used properly.
